Major League Wonderful

 “God disguised as myriad things, and playing a game of tag, has kissed you and said, “You’re it./ I mean you’re really it. Now it does not matter what you believe or feel. For something wonderful, something major-league wonderful, is someday going to happen.”- Hafiz 

 

Poetry has the power to inspire, delight, inform and take us to places that we had never before considered going. Hafiz is one such poet whose words from ancient times speak to me in ways that tickle my soul.  Did he know at the time that the syllables he uttered, seven centuries ago, would create ripples on the pond of creation and touch so many hearts?  Do we have a clue that the creative gifts of our own souls can have that impact on those who will witness them? 

How do you allow God to play tag with you?

Are you willing to be smooched by the Divine?

What ‘major-league’ wonderful thing are you open to receiving in your life? 

I KNOW that ‘major league wonderful things’ are happening every day.  Claim them. Embrace them.

 

Hafiz was a 14th century Persian, Sufi mystical poet who wrote what I like to think of as ecstatic love poems: to, for and with God. They are multi-layered, since they are divinely and humanly devotional. A modern writer Daniel Landinsky has translated these  wondrous words  and his books:The Gift – Poems by Hafiz, The Subject Tonight is Love: 60 Wild and Sweet Poems of Hafiz, and Love Poems From God – Twelve Sacred Voices From The East And West  can be found in most book stores.

    Ah, what beauty to be blessed with poetic inspiration. Just a couple of days ago, I lay in my bed talking to God in poetry. It flowed as if I had written it with great thought. It just came from my thoughts and out of my mouth, as if it were a psalm.

    Joan:
    I sense that we are all poets at heart and the Divine says “take dictation….it’s time to share the beauty that you are.” Glad you heard the call.
    Blissings,

Pass It Onword
Back in November, as I was meandering the aisles at the Mind Body Spirit Expo in King of Prussia, PA, I came to a booth at which two women were beaming beatifically. In front of them was a table of simple wares. Stones engraved with a word-  gratitude, strength, inspire, forgive, and kindness, we

How We Grieve
  "When my Guru died in 1973, I assumed that because of the important part he played in my life, and the love I felt for him, I would be inundated with grief. Surprisingly, I was not. In time, I came to realize why. He and I were so well established in Soul love that, in the years since he l

Recovering Human Doing
Lounging in bed, surrounded by lots of pillows and snuggled under quilts as I am typing these words. It is a drowsy, dozy Sunday morning. The radio is playing easing into my day tunes.  My standard weekend fare begins with Sleepy Hollow on WXPN which is a Philly based member supported Public Radio

Thriving Artist
Last night, I attended a holiday gathering for a group of talented artists, writers, publishers, radio hosts, producers, as well as PR and marketing folks. Needless to say, I was in my idea of heaven. The Center City Philadelphia Restaurant where it was held is called Bliss. What a perfect place for
